If you're a creationist, wouldn't you want to know if Rubio was more scientific leaning, and believed that the earth is billions instead of thousands of years old... it would affect your opinion of him.
His answer reinforces that he does not believe in the separation of church and state -- I'll show you a clip if you don't believe that.
His answer also drew an opinion from Jeb Bush:
--Bush Jr., who is cofounder and chairman of SunPAC, a political action committee that looks to attract young Floridian Hispanics, called the questions strange but also admitted that Rubio gave a "kind of a head-scratching type of answer."--
But again, going back to the Republican Party and how we kind of shape the tone, we gotta be a pro-science and pro-technology party. I think Rubio is just that. But we also can't forget about our traditional values, things like faith and family... But, yeah, kind of a strange response, I guess."
Science may not always be perfect, but it's a much better alternative to fables and fairy tales.
